Beach Lover. Art Admirer. Improv Addict.
Hi! My name is Alya and I'm generally a 'happy-go-lucky' person -
thanks to my astrological sign: Libra.
True to the Libran's archetype - I'm idealistic and think life should be fair.
(Go ahead. Laugh. Roll your eyes. Snort.
It's okay, I do...usually loudly and on first dates.)
I've had the calling to be an actor since I was in second grade. I love being on set and on stage.
I especially love being involved in a production that affects a person's life in a positive way.
One of my goals is to be in a production where my character makes the audience laugh so hard,
their stomach hurts and then cry so hard, their nose runs. (not necessarily in that order.)
I was a member (and producer) of "FreeFall International" Improv troupe -
an international group of actors and creators, established and performed during the pandemic:
live, unscripted shows on zoom for people all around the world to connect and have fun together.
We entertained our audiences with joy, tears and/or laughter, by recognizing our shared humanity.
I've worked on network television shows, been cast in numerous independent films,
corporate industrials and principal roles in commercials.
I am consistently working on my craft with a variety of acting coaches, currently with Jo Kelly.
I'm also working on booking a guest-star role on a comedy series, ideally with Taika Waititi!!
